American universities have become cesspools for the radical Left.
The consequences have been dire with more young Americans adopting Marxist views.
But one liberal professor just sacrificed his entire career after the horrific thing he witnessed in this Antifa hotbed.
Philosophy professor Peter Boghossian resigned his teaching position at Portland State University once he came to the conclusion that the school was ideologically destroyed beyond repair.
Portland State University is a hotbed for Antifa radicals.
Far-left zealots have systematically taken over American universities over the course of several decades, and now colleges are little more than indoctrination mills.
Boghossian wrote in his resignation letter:
“I sought to create the conditions for rigorous thought; to help [students] gain the tools to hunt and furrow for their own conclusions. This is why I became a teacher and why I love teaching. But brick by brick, the university has made this kind of intellectual exploration impossible. It hastransformed a bastion of free inquiry into a Social Justice factory whose only inputs were race, gender, and victimhood and whose only outputs were grievance and division.”
Boghossian rose to notoriety as part of the Sokal Squared hoax where he and fellow liberal academics Helen Pluckrose and James Lindsay wrote bogus grievance studies papers to expose the academic and intellectual fraud taking place in higher education.
One of their papers took an excerpt from Hitler’s Mein Kampf and simply tweaked the language to adhere to radical feminism.
The paper was enthusiastically accepted to an academic journal.
The trio produced multiple papers and had over half a dozen accepted in “respectable” publications before the hoax was exposed by a Wall Street Journal reporter.
To this day, the three academics are vigorously pushing back against the “woke” Left; Lindsay—who openly admitted to voting for Donald Trump and Republicans down ballot—has been particularly aggressive against the leftist onslaught.
Boghossian continued in his letter:
“Students at Portland State are not being taught to think. Rather, they are being trained to mimic the moral certainty of ideologues. Faculty and administrators have abdicated the university’s truth-seeking mission and instead drive intolerance of divergent beliefs and opinions. This has created a culture of offense where students are now afraid to speak openly and honestly.”
Sadly, Portland State is not unique.There are countless universities that are infected with the same woke-ism.
This is the result of the leftist “long march through the institutions.”
The Left took over academia, which is where all the bad ideas are created and spread to the future elites.
